From The Boston Globe-
The clergy members stood shoulder to shoulder Tuesday at St. Anne's Episcopal Church with a promise to help undocumented immigrants.
The nearly 20 faith leaders were there to formally announce the formation of the Merrimack Valley Sanctuary Network, through which they plan to offer shelter, needed supplies, or services to undocumented immigrants who are threatened with deportation.
"We here believe that the current policies of the Department of Homeland Security and the practices of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, otherwise known as ICE, are cruel, destructive, and fail to live up to the ideals of America," Rev. Peter Lovett, senior minister at the United Church of Christ (UCC), read from a statement signed by the leaders of participating congregations.
